Que Sera

Que sera, sera (whatever will be, will be) ~ Doris Day Theme Song

The “What Is” Is.

The greatest griefs are those we cause ourselves. ~ Sophocles

Hardship is inevitable, misery is optional.

When life hands you lemons, remember to spit out the seeds! ♥ ♥ ♥

Accept the things you cannot change. ~ Serenity Prayer

Embrace ALL with Joy . . . Anything can be a Gift of Gold in Disguise.

Souls don’t break . . . they bounce!


Question your life.  Never get comfortable with it.  Keep reinventing yourself.

Don’t expect an answer until you voice the question.

Look deep ~ the answers lie within.
The spark of divine spirit knows where its been.

Always be questioning.


Quietude, even more than solitude, provides clarity.

How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward. ~ Spanish Proverb

Silence the mind, just be, focus on your breath.  It bubbles with energy, and overflows with bliss.

Sometimes I sits and thinks and sometimes I just sits. ~ Satchel Paige

Don’t just do something, sit there.

True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~ William Penn


In reality there is perhaps not one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride.  Disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive, and will every now and then peep out and show itself. For even if I could conceive that I had completely overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility. ~ Benjamin Franklin

He is a modest man who has a good deal to be modest about. ~ Winston Churchill

Although every cloud has a silver lining . . . by the time you find it, it may be tarnished.

Raising teenagers is like trying to nail jello to a tree. ~ Erma Bombeck

I’m not a vegetarian because I love animals. I’m a vegetarian because I hate plants. ~ Brown

Just took a walk down Memory Lane ~ amazing how many potholes I had to avoid!

Golf . . . a good walk spoiled. ~ Mark Twain

It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. ~ H.L. Mencken

In politics, absurdity is not a handicap. ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

What will they find when they google you? Quantity or Quality? ♥ ♥ ♥

Absolute certainty is a privilege of uneducated minds and fanatics. ~ C.J. Keyser

Common sense is not so common. ~ Voltaire

He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire. ~ Winston Churchill

Being powerful is like being a lady.  If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.  ~ Margaret Thatcher
